We at the Art Academy offer two course packages, one on bachelor's
level and one on master's level. Depending on your previous
knowledge/wether you're a bachelor or a master student and how many
ECTS in Fine Art courses you have, you may apply to either of the
two packages including courses that we offer to our programme
students in their 2nd term of studies. In order to find our course
packages click here, check the box
"Architecture, design, culture and art" under Subjects and they
will appear. Both of them are called Artistic practice:
Artistic practice, bachelor's level, term
Artistic practice, master's level, term
On top of the 30 credits you take with us you have the
possibility to apply for and be accepted to another 15 credits of
courses offered by some other department within Umeå
Once you're here, besides the course package you have the option
to sign up for the workshops that we offer. These will not give you
any extra credits but hopefully provide you with new skills and if
you want to you can always ask the teacher or professor holdig the
workshop to certify that you have participated in his/her
Step 3. Work samples, motivation letter and CV
In addition to applying for courses you need to send
your digital portfolio to us. This application should include
approximtely 5 work samples, a motivation letter and your CV.
Send your application to firstname.lastname@example.org
Deadline for sending in work samples, motivation letter and CV:
After the deadline, our professors will go through the incoming
applications and decide who they want to offer a place based on the
artistic quality of the student's portfolio and motivation letter.
We always have to adjust to the total number of students at the
school as we only have a certain number of studio places to offer
so whether or not we'll be able to offer a place very much depends
on how many students we have at the moment.
